My Early Valentine's Present

This lovely dish is my Valentine's present, thanks OH.  It is Tain Pottery and i have been collecting items in this design, which is called Fearn, for a while.  The pottery is all handpainted and i love the bumble bees and flowers.  It is also oven, freezer and dishwasher proof.  I think this size is perfect for a crumble.

I have 6 dinner plates, 3 side plates and 6 bowls and I don't believe in keeping them for best so I use them every day. 

I have decided to mix in a few of their tartan designs and you can see i have started with a couple of bowls.  You can also see the yellow minion plates which i use when the Grandkids come just peeping in the background.

I accidentally picked up these in their Buchanan design!  I have to admit that i only ever buy their seconds as half the time i can't see much difference with them and the firsts and of course it means i get them cheaper.

The darker green/blue tartan design is called Forbes and i took my bowl from the firsts pile and asked the sales assistant if it could possibly be a second.  It was a bit cheaky of me but there weren't any in the seconds and after at first saying no, she then said she was sure she could see a pinprick in the design so i could have it at the seconds price!

I have a few odd pieces of the pottery, the jug is Forbes but the other two are just samples i think.
I will continue building up a tartan collection bit by bit and in the meantime enjoy using those that i have.

  1. I love your pottery, it's very beautiful and unique. We would never see anything like that here. My mom was half Scottish and she loved anything with tartan and especially thistles.
